Belt tensioner did it for me
I had this issue in the first 500 miles on my '19 RT Limited. Added the belt tensioner from Lamonster garage and don't have the issue anymore.

Do a search on here for "tires". You will get 12 pages of hits.
Since I got mine I have seen recommendations for others that might be a bit better.
Basically any other brand that is the right size......and aren't "specialty" tires, like for off-road or racing.

|Trev Astle||what other brand option for front do you use?|

And you have not changed the tires.......why exactly ??
If you still have the stock Kenda's, you should love the difference if you change to a different brand.
OH......and don't ignore the rear tire as a possible cause.

|Claimbo||It won't hurt the bike but it is very annoying. I had a tensioner put on but that was of no help. I had the front end rebuilt and still it was there. What I found was running the front tires with 20 pounds of air helped. I believe it's in the tires. They are not made very well so its my opinion that is the problem. I have a 2016 RTS with 45000 miles on it. The bike is very well maintained but the problem is still there.|

|Wilo1979||I have the same thing happen around 75-80 Mph it's the belt vibration that causes the noise. It's not a problem and will not hurt the machine. Sometimes I just speed up and it goes away other times I slow down 2 or 3 mph and it stops.|

That's about the speed where some owners notice a belt vibration.
If it won't go away with a belt tension adjustment, you might need a belt vibration damper.
Or you can just avoid that exact speed where it occurs.

|Bella Tate||Itís 117 kph and Iím running around 4000|

I would certainly think so.
Sounds like a rev limiter to me.
What RPM is it turning at 117 MPH ??
Or is that 117 KPH ??
